author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
There have been lots of users reporting that Dead Rising 2 is not picking up their xbox360 controllers, so here is a profile until a fix comes out. The images below show the official Xbox360 controls and the official pc controls along with the mappings that i have made. This profile actually works quite well. Enjoy
There's a crap-load of problems with the steam controller support.
For what it's worth, I gave it a shot. It works but you gotta figure out the buttons in-game. No enter button, and the dpad is mapped to the wrist watch and other secondary functions.

Feel free to mod, refine, upload, etc.
